International Relations officials confirmed on Monday they were communicating with the family of Kathryne Fuller, a South African woman found unconscious in a Ugandan hotel.
Fuller is recovering in hospital under police guard, after she allegedly overdosed on cocaine.
She was found in the same hotel room with the body of Jeff Rice, the American producer of the television show The Amazing Race.
He was on the balcony of the Serena Hotel with blood pouring from his nose and mouth.
An autopsy done by Ugandan police showed that Rice had died from a cocaine overdose, as there were large quantities of the drugs in his stomach.
Fuller who was Rice's assistant also tested positive for drugs.
International relations spokesperson Clayson Monyela said, “The department of International Relations is aware of the incident and our mission in Uganda is rendering consular services to the family.”
